Apparatus and method of making a very dense tufted fabric using a programmed intermittent backing fabric feed in combination with means for changing the relative lateral displacement of the point of needle penetration into the backing fabric. The method in general comprises feeding a backing fabric through the machine, tufting stitches into the backing, stopping the fabric feed and initiating relative lateral displacement between the backing fabric and the needles, tufting additional stitches into the backing fabric and either initiating further relative displacement between the backing fabric and the needles and tufting again or feeding the fabric forward and repeating the process.
